Slipping Away.

Can you feel it? Summer slipping through your fingers? Every morning I wake up and it feels a little more like fall. There is beginning to be a briskness in the air. A cool breeze. I am resisting this transition. Don't get me wrong, I love fall. It is my favorite season after all. But I hate the idea of my children being away all day. I hate the idea of Mr. Owen missing his siblings and playmates. So, what will we do? We will savor the pool. Take walks. Ride bikes. And continue on until August 27 arrives and says "You have to let them go."

  1. I just realized the other day how close it is until kids go back to school. Even though this doesn't affect us yet, I couldn't believe how fast summer has gone. Of course, down here we have much better weather on the way, but my baby will be turning one already and not be a baby anymore. Love the splashing picture--the water droplets are so clear!

  3. I've been feeling the same way. I feel like it's crunch time to do some of the summer things we haven't had a chance to do yet. Summer flew by in a hurry this year!

  10. What am I going to miss most about summer? You taking my kids to the pool! You have saved them from a summer stuck in the house with Mom and newborn. You are the best!

  14. At least you know to relish these days with the little ones, they grow up so fast. The good thing is that they are always kids to us! What's a Mom to do? Hug, kiss noses, etc...
